These orchids are short stemmed. It'll be interesting to use them in an arrangement when so often the longer stemmed orchids are used as line flowers as opposed to these orchids will be tighter in a piece. Will try tonight as an experiment. It also seems funny to know that the vase is empty inside except for the three stems and a pinholder. It seems compelling to fill the void. Rather it becomes space. This picture was taken where light was seen on a gray day.
